Archer Aviation to Construct High-Capacity eVTOL Production Facility in Georgia

Archer Aviation has announced plans to construct the industry’s first high-capacity eVTOL manufacturing facility in Covington, Georgia.

This 96-acre site is adjacent to the Covington Municipal Airport. The eVTOL aircraft manufacturing facility would have the capacity to produce up to 650 aircraft per year.

This production site in Georgia would prepare Archer Aviation for its upcoming projects, such as its recently announced eVTOL route between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and New York City.

In selecting the location for its first manufacturing facility, Archer completed a comprehensive survey of potential sites across the United States
Adam Goldstein, Archer's CEO said:

“After many months of discussion and evaluation, we’re excited to select Georgia as the location for our manufacturing facility. The US has long led the world in aerospace technology, and Georgia has played a vital role in that industry. Our eVTOL technology can transform how urban and rural communities live and commute and this factory can create pathways to highly skilled manufacturing jobs and other ladders of social and economic opportunity.”

Construction of the facility is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2024, with production set to begin in the second half of the same year.

The initial 350,000 square-foot facility could be expanded by an additional 550,000 square feet in the future, which could support production of up to 2,300 aircraft per year.

Commenting on the decision to locate the facility in Georgia, Governor Brian P. Kemp commented:

“Georgia has made nurturing innovation a priority as we work with businesses to define the future. Our established leadership in the aerospace industry was essential to landing Archer Aviation in Newton County. We are thrilled to welcome Archer to the state of Georgia, where they can take advantage of our signature workforce training program Quick Start to help fill, in the long-term, over 1,000 jobs in Covington.”
